Wow. Just posted my 121st... Please count me in, I'd love to gather some leaves. Also - there's a chestnut right outside my window too. I always like to read about yours and compare notes :) (it's exactly the same grey sky + bare tree here today)

Looking at that adorable little pouch I feel like shouting " I want thar pouch!!" Unfortunately I am not a 5-year-old nasty little bugger any more, but an elderly lady who has learnt to be polite.As a matter of fact there is a leaf-emergency in front of my flat, so I need some help and that's why I remember those good ol' days shouting and stomping...
"I w...would like that little pouch very much!I promise to take care of it and offer educational visits to the theatre for the little pouchy-pet.

Els hat gesagt…

450 ???? so many already? I've just started and made my 12th post today. I love the colours on your little pouch : just big enough for some acorns or hazelnuts ... finds on a autumn walk.

Thank you for sharing your work with us. The pouch is wondrous! It's a perfect vessel for gatherings of many kinds.

Velma hat gesagt…

i was gathering two collections of leaves yesterday afternoon and thought, how odd that these are all tidy and in a neat stack, and i have no neat stack sort of place, so they went into my jeans pocket. funny you should be offering a leaf gathering bag!

Julie Shackson hat gesagt…

Wow! Well done. Hope I'm still blogging at post 450. Please count me in; I love your textile pieces and your dye samples.

helen hat gesagt…

You are one of my favorite artists in cloth work. I almost bought this bag the other day, so of course, I'd LOVE to win it, and who can't use more of your lovely fabric. I've had trouble posting again, so hope this works. Helen

Congratulations on hanging in there, I would love to win some of your work.

helen hat gesagt…

I must have figured it out again, cause it worked! Yippee! Wanted to add congratulations on 450 posts. I know I'm glad I found you when I did. I don't know how I ever survived on milk and bread alone and no HG handmade. Ha! Helen

Judy Martin hat gesagt…

Your gentle way with dyed fabric is inspiring. Congratulations on 450.
I love to visit here and see your work.

deanna7trees hat gesagt…

would love your little leaf pouch...especially because it would be from you.
btw: if you're still unable to view videos, there's a new version of the Adobe Flashplayer. You might try googling and downloading it. That should work. I've had that problem on occasion.

Fyrelizard hat gesagt…

Such a beautiful bag! It makes me feel nostalgic for the crunching of autumn leaves under my feet, and frost the painting windows and dew turning spider webs to jewellery. I'd love to win such a beautiful piece of art work... I shall keep my fingers crossed!

cristina hat gesagt…

your gathering leaves pouch resembles a leaf, itself and reminded me of this question asked

by Pablo Neruda:
"why not give a medal to the first golden leaf?"

your pouch deserves a medal . . .
cheers to 450, and many more!
keep me in mind, please
